Version 2.3 of mod_wsgi is now available. The software and
documentation are both available from:

The mod_wsgi package consists of an Apache web server module designed
and implemented specifically for hosting Python based web applications
that support the WSGI interface specification.

Examples of major Python web frameworks and applications which are
known to work in conjunction with mod_wsgi include CherryPy, Django,
MoinMoin, Pylons, Trac, TurboGears, Werkzeug and Zope.

Version 2.3 of mod_wsgi is a bug fix update. The most important of the
bug fixes addresses a data truncation issue when using

configurations for any other file like objects used with

It is highly recommended that if you are using version 2.0 or 2.1 of
mod_wsgi that you upgrade, especially if using web applications such
as Trac, which make use of the wsgi.file_wrapper extension.

Note that version 2.3 of mod_wsgi was a quick fire release to fix
issues caused in version 2.2 release which preceded 2.3 by a day or
so. If you have already obtained version 2.2 of mod_wsgi, you should
ensure you upgrade to version 2.3.

A description of changes in version 2.2/2.3 can be found in the change
